2003 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The new Thunderbird is a cool retro design with all of the modern conveniences. Whether cruising with the top down or with the hardtop on, one cannot help but feel excited. It not only looks like a dream, it also handles like one. With its 280 hp engine, you never have to worry about the big rig bearing down on you as you get on the highway.


Best Features

The retro styling. I always wanted a classic T Bird.


Worst Features

A real clock would be nice.

Review

WHEN I DRIVE THIS VEHICLE ALL MY TROUBLES DISAPPEAR. IT WAS THE BEST WASTE OF MONEY I EVER DID !!I RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE. AND THE CORAL COLOR GET'S A LOT OF ATTENTION. EVERYONE NOTICES ME DRIVING THIS CAR. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU STARED AT A VET ON THE ROAD? I GET ALL AGE GROUPS LOOKING AND EVEN ASKING QUESTIONS AT RED LIGHTS!


Best Features

I LOVE THE FRONT END AND THE PROFILE OF THE CAR. A SLEEK COOL CAR.


Worst Features

SLIGHTLY HARD TO SEE TRAFFIC WHEN BACKING UP OUT OF A PARKING SPOT, WHEN TOP IS ON OR UP. BUT I'LL DEAL WITH IT.

2003 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)


Review

At 55, my T'bird is helping me hang on to what's left of my youth! A neighbor had a '57 and I just loved his car and dreamed that someday. My T'bird rides a little heavy and sometimes feels like its floating. Both inside and out, it is just retro beautiful and everybody who sees it has a T'bird story to tell me. My story happened last Oct. when a Park policeman pulled me over for speeding. He told me that he had a '56 and that mine was the first new one he had seen on the parkway. He asked me if he could drive mine! And who would say no to a policeman? 15 minutes later he returned with a big smile. By the way, I didn't get a ticket!


Best Features

I love the turquoise and chrome, retro T'bird logo that is on the hood, dash, behind the seat and on the trunk. The overall design of this car is excellent.


Worst Features

The "floating" feel on the highway and the gas mileage. I realize it is a V-8, but with the current gas prices and the hi-test requirement, it gets expensive to drive.
